Since the Tammy Howl is published three times a year, each editor has taken the responsibility of editing one issue. Cathy Latham, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy W. Latham of Columbia, Ten- nessee, is the chief editor for the December issue. Taking the editor position for the May issue is LeMoine Otjen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Otjen, Jr., of Enid, Oklahoma. Diane Stewart, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Stewart, of Florence, South Carolina, is the chief edi- tor of the August issue. The Tammy Howl is extremely lucky to have Mrs. Mary Black- well, who is originally from Jackson, Mississippi, but now makes her home in Long Beach, for its sponsor. She not only teaches here at Gulf Park, but also at Jefferson Davis Junior College. The editors and the sponsor, along with a very enthusiastic staff, are working to create an enjoyable Tammy Howl for everyone. 2 WHAT'S HAPPENING by Diane Stewart SEPTEMBER 8 School opened 9-10 Registration 11 Gulf Park Day in Gulfport Formal Reception 14 Get Acquainted Dance 18 Assembly by Rev.

Special thanks go to the Sophomores for the mature leadership which they have shown since the beginning of the year. The Panhellenic Council gave a great deal of time to their sororities and moved away from the high school "Hell day" to the collegiate "help day." The new class and club officers were very wisely selected and are aiming toward excellence. The Faculty of your college is the best qualified one that I have seen in my tenure at Gulf Park. I can assure you that they are very interested in doing everything possible to prepare you for your role in life. We are making every attempt to modernize the curricu- la and the physical plant. It is our hope that we will be able to continue the renovations of Hardy Hall this summer and that you will be one of the lucky ones to get a "new" room. Judging from the good beginning we have made thus far, I have every reason to believe that this will be the best year in the history of Gulf Park College. WILLIAM SADLER President ANNIVERSARY GREETING Marine Lt. William W. Riggs, whose wife lives in Pass Christian, Miss., and who is fighting in the jungles of South Vietnam around Phu Bai, wanted everybody to know about his first wedding an- niversary. He arranged to have a portable billboard stationed on Hwy. 90 at Pass Christian. Riggs is with K Co., Third Battalion, Fifth Marines. His wife is the former Sydney Elaine Jones of New Orleans and Pass Christian. She is a graduate of Gulf Park College, Long 1 Beach. They have a two-month-old son. President Sadler in student interview. STUDENT BODY PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE As you view the wind-swept shores in front of Hardy Hall you know that you have made the right choice. Stepping through the gates a feeling of warmth sweeps in. It is as though a voice were saying, "Welcome, we have been waiting for you." The arms of the Friendship Oak reach out and take you in. The year of 1968-69 I feel will be one of Gulf Park's greatest. With a great deal of high hopes, enthusiasm, coop- eration, and endless energy and a group of girls with new ideas and concern, I feel that the student body can progress a long way in accomplishing its expected goals. My fondest wish is that through our unified efforts and many experiences we will have benefited from being on the campus and that Gulf Park will be a better college by reason of our having passed this way. Welcome, and the best of luck to you all! Sincerely, Vicki Eshelman Student Body President 1968-69 mam STEWARDESS Miss Michael (Mickie) Harper, who was voted campus favorite at Gulf Park College, Long Beach, has become a stewardess with World Airways of Oakland, Calif., the largest charter airline in the world. She is now flying to Eur- ope and the Far East, accompany- ing large tourist groups in World's fleet of Boeing 707 jets. She graduated in 1966 from Gulf Park and went for two years to the University of Texas. Friday, Sept. 13, 1968 Dear Col. Wink: Maybe I shouldn't write you to- day seeing that it is Friday, the 13th. I found a short newspaper article and thought I would send it to you. It's sort of weird as compared to a "military view." How have you been? Still eating those apples for lunch? I think of you quite often, Col. Wink; and I miss Gulf Park so very much. Really I wish I were there now instead of the University of Ken- tucky. This summer I met a man named Valkenburg, who is a world renowned geographer, at the Phi Theta Kappa Institute. I com- mented to him and Mrs. Nosal, along with several others, that he reminded me of you — just like a great big "teddy bear." Of course, I never heard the end of it. I thought he was a wonderful man, an excellent lecturer, just like the man he reminded me of — you. I think of you and GPC so often, especially when I see all the other girls up here from school — Linda Wills, Judy Grose- close, Kathleen Keiter, Ellen Mott, Lucy Carol Johnson and Carolyn Kirby. Patti Gesler is now an air- line stewardess. Sandy Shoemaker underwent major surgery (emer- gency) last week, but she is doing fine now. Mitzi Tate is attending Transylvania College here in Lex- ington. Guess I better close now. Please give Dean Johnson, Mrs. Ferrell and Mrs. Lumpkin my sincerest regards and tell them I'll be writ- ing very soon. Best of luck throughout this year. Give your classes my regards and tell them I wish I were sitting there with them. Love ya, Pat PS Let Me not forget Mrs. Perdue by any means. L. Pat Flanagan Kirwan No. 1, Box 50 Lexington, Kentucky 40506 SCHOOL OPENS! by Sally Sockwell 1968 Sophomore I went to the machine and put my dime in I pushed the Coke button and the machine, it did spin. Down came the ice and the Coke was poured up, But lo and behold, where was the cup? ♦Author's note: "That's automation for you." DANCING ANYBODY? by Mary Finch As tradition serves, the new school year began with a dance called the Mixer. Invitations were sent to boys attending Jefferson Davis and those at Keesler's AFB and the Seabee's Base. Tables were set up around the school auditorium and the stage was transformed into a band stand. Within a few hours, Gulf Park was converted into a teenage dis- coteque. Most everyone had a good time. The next school dance was held on October 19. This party seemed to have a better turn out than the first one and the atmosphere was even more perfect for a night of fun and dance. The officers at Keesler have ar- ranged to invite Gulf Park to a dance every two weeks. A bus is sent to pick up those girls at- tending. The dress is casual. Most of the girls really seem to enjoy these dances, although they say that they out-number the boys. All of the girls are anticipat- ing the coming Thanksgiving and Christmas dances. Both are to be held the weekend before the holi- days. This year is going to be really great at Gulf Park and we, the students, intend to make the coming dances the best Gulf Park has ever had!! THREE COINS IN A FOUNTAIN? Admiring the Hardy Court fountain on arrival are three freshmen, Sharon Murphy, Jayne Houghland and Polly Lister. Carol Craven, sophomore hostess, shows off the fa- miliar landmark on the front campus. NEW FACULTY MEMBERS by Carol Craven Gulf Park has added to its fac- ulty nine new ambitious teach- ers. Most of the new teachers are from Mississippi. Mrs. Julianne Boyd, the public speaking and dramatics teacher is originally from Pennsylvania. She graduated from Adelphi in Garden City, New York, where she worked in the Adelphi Summer Theatre for two years. Before coming to Gulf Park she spent two years in New York City.

A new face to students but a familiar face to the faculty is that of Mrs. Dot Merdinger. Mrs. Merdinger taught at Gulf Park three years ago. She has taught privately for the past three years after the year that was spent at Gulf Park. Mrs. Merdinger gradu- ated from Sullins and studied in London for two years with Sad- lers' Wells Ballet School.

GULF PARK ADDS MERCHANDISING COURSE by Phyllis Garner Caveat Emptor, meaning "let the buyer beware," is a new or- ganization at Gulf Park College. It is open to those students in Retail Merchandising who wish to pursue attractive careers of buy- ing and selling in the retail busi- ness. The emblem of the organiza- tion was designed by Miss Laura Wilkinson and was presented for the first time on place cards when the dinner was held at the Broadwater. A year of long anticipated ex- citement and growth has begun with a bang in the new Retail Merchandising Department at Gulf Park. On Wednesday night, Sep- tember 18, a delightful dinner was held at the Broadwater Marina in order that the enrolled students and faculty participating in the program might get acquainted. During the month of October, the Merchandising students were still on the go. Sophomore stu- dents in the department, under the direction of Miss Helen Pick- iing, were responsible for carrying out the fashion, show in Assembly on October 2 entitled "Self Real- ization Through Clothes." On Oc- tober 25 the twelve Merchandis- ing students and chaperones, Mrs. Bagwell and Miss Brock, depart- ed for Dallas to attend one of the largest apparel markets in the world. The trip consisted of five days of exciting experiences which were both fun-filled and reward- ing. Other points of interest seen through guided tours were Nei- man-Marcus, the city of Houston, and the Astrodome. Selling internships began on November 18 and will continue through December 20. Each stu- dent will work on a full-time basis of forty paid hours per Kveek. This actual on-the-job experience is vital to one who wishes to enter the retail business. The following local stores are participating: Brumfield's, Dorothy Brown Shop, Ellis Salloum's. Fasold's, Gayfer's, Godchaux, Ideal Shop, La Bou- tique, Northrop's, Penney's, Purple Lantern, and Shamis'. An employee whose personal ap- pearance and manners are such that she will be an asset wherever she works, is a must. Therefore, a Personal Appearance Clinic is provided so that there will be an emphasis on good grooming, pos- ture, and proper etiquette. Since a cultural background is also es- sential in business and community life, the students attend special programs, plays and operas in New Orleans and on the Coast. Left to right — Phyllis Garner.

THE MIRACLE WORKER by LeMoine Otjen When dramatized by William Gibson the rebirth of Helen Kel- ler becomes a very demanding play for the .students of Gulf Park. The Miracle Worker is the remarkable, true story of a deaf, dumb and blind child who through the actions of her teacher, Annie Sullivan, is brought into the nor- mal world. Presented on Novem- ber 20, 21, 22 and 23 under the di- rection of Miss Helen Picking, The Miracle Worker brought well earned praises to the drama de- partment. The opening scenes depict Helen Keller's infant sickness which causes her disabilities. Helen's parents, Capt. and Mrs. Keller, are ably played by Mr. James Maxwell and Melissa Huston. After many years of useless dis- hearting searching for help for the tantrumes Helen, vividly por- trayed by Lynn Coleman, a teach- er is hired. The only person who is able to "unlock the little safe with the unknown treasure inside" Helen's teacher, Annie Sullivan, is personified by Patti Schrader. The early rehearsals could eas- ily have been mistaken as sequent ces from Batman. The slam-BANG, Pow, Zip, - Zot knock down drag- out struggles resulted in enumer- able bruises for both Pati and Lynn. For realism the fights be- tween Helen and her teacher had to be actual blows which the ac- tors often felt through their pad- ding. When The Miracle Worker was first produced in October of 1959, there was much publicity about the realism used, even dur- ing rehearsals of the fight scenes between Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke. Supporting: roles were played by Betsy Hogg as Aunt Ev, Roz- zie Bird as the Maid Viney, Mr. Anaganos by Mr. Edward M. Craig, and Tom Merchant as James Keller. Bobby Johnson, Kathi Abrahamson, Prliddy Hut- ton, Mary Craig, LeMoine Otjen and Gayle Maurin completed the cast. As there were four men in the early life of Helen Keller so were there four in the lives of the cast for The Miracle Worker. Mr. Jim Maxwell who had the male lead as Capt. Keller is an attorney for the Employment and Securities Division of the State of Miss. His wife is the former Gulf Park music teacher Miss Archer. They reside in Gulfport with a five year old son. Mr. Maxwell has partici- pated in dramatic productions while in college at Ole'Miss, the Gulf Coast Theatre of Arts and the Gulfport Little Theatre. He has portrayed Colonel Pickering in My Fair Lady; and Capt. Cook in The Barretts of Wimpole Street. He also had roles in The Moon Is Blue, Student Prince, Teahouse of the August Moon, and one prev- ious experience at Gulf Park in The Merry Wives of Windsor. Mr. Maxwell says he very much en- joys being in Gulf Park produc- tions because of the excellent di- rection. Mr. Edward M. Craig has seen most of the Gulf Park dramatic presentations and thinks it is now nice to be in one. Mr. Craig played the role of Mr. Anaganos but be- tween scenes he kept an eye on his 12 year old daughter Maiy who also had a part in The Mir- acle Worker. Besides Mary he has two sons and four grandchildren. While living in Pass Christian Mr. Craig has participated in the Gulf Coast Theatre of Arts as Edward Barrett in The Barretts of Wimpole Street, the Gulf Coast Little Theatre as Patsy in Three Men On a Horse and the Bay St. Louis Theatre as Petrovin in An- astasia. Being 1 an Engineer for General Electric Company has given Mr. Craig the opportunity for travel and thereby permitted him to be active in theatres in Denver, California, New York and Michigan. The part of James Keller was filled by a young Keesler Air Force Officer, Tom Merchant. He graduated from Milton College in Wisconsin with a BA in theatre and continued his studies there for one more year in graduate 8 school before joining the Air Force as a newswriter at the Of- fice of Information. Tom was in many college productions, and also in summer stock at the Green Ram Theatre of Wisconsin. Mr. Merchant said, "After once leav- ing college and joining the Air Force it is fun to get back to college life." He feels that this is his world because it is young and alive. He thought The Miracle Worker was a good opportunity for him, especially at an exciting; college like Gulf Park. Tom's wife is now teaching high school Eng- lish and Tom hopes to joini her in the profession by teaching drama at the college level as soon as he leaves the Air Force. Bobby Johnson, age 7, from the second grade at Jeff Davis Ele- bentary, son of Dean and Mrs. Johnson, represented Percy, a young negro servant of the Kel- lers. Bobby's former experience entails a part in last year's Christ- program where he had to kick Coca. He feels his part in The Miracle Worker was hard because he had to appear in four different scenes. In one scene he had to watch them bring a ladder to get Annie out of her locked room. Bobby can't read yet but he says he had no problem learning his lines, just problems in saying them loud enough. Mr. Johnson seemed to like it best when he could go to the back of the audi- torium and play with a brigfht orange rubber ball. WRITHE FIVE by Diane Stewart If by any chance one wandered into the speech workshop and found a dimly lighted room with checkered clothed tables, heard the sipping of cokes and the munching of popcorn, one had arrived at Gulf Park's "in crowd ' review. The Dance, Drama and Music Departments were present- ing its annual review which this year was entitled WRITHE FIVE. Ihis lively, mad, mod review was a take-off on the NOW GENERA- TION with sketches of gerus, "pot", hyppies, education, campus life, and blind dates. Along with the Gulf Park girls, nine MALES JET MASKERS Mayna Ray Gulf Park's theatrical group, Jet Maskers, has been busy this year. Their past two stage produc- tions, Rive Five and the Miracle Worker, were tremendous succes- ses (especially at Keesler). But that is not all! ! Under the super- vision of their sponsors, Mrs. Boyd and Miss Picking, the group is planning a trip to New Orleans to see a live stage production in January. They are also planning a Christmas party where the members can display their talents in various skits. On November 12, the fabulous Mac Gibbs was the honorable guest at a Jet Maskers meeting where he gave the group a lesson in the art of stage makeup. from the Keesler Chorus bright- ened the normally female stage with their voices, songs and dances. From the Gulf Park student body were Laura Asplin, Suzie Cole, Cathy Gurnsey, Nancy Grif- fith, Kay Neely, Muffet Triggs, Bette Norwood, and Donna Thomp- son along, with JenJ Bernadoni Curt Dearmin, Mike Hogan, Steve Nylus, John Philipe and Gary Turner from the Keesler Male Chorus. The success of the three night performance would have been impossible without the direc- tion and assistance of Mrs. Juli- anne Boyd, Miss Helen Picking, Mrs. Dot Merdinger and Mr. Don- ald Christmas. The Jet Maskers' Club sold refreshments, painted scenery, altered costumes and other various things any produc- tion would call for. Mrs. Boyd felt the combination of drama sketches with song and dance gave the girls a chance to bone up on their acting and the student body an idea of the ac- tiveness of the group. If WRITHE FIVE was any indication of what is to come, Gulf Park has great expectations for the coming sea- son. Chris Cadigan There are about twenty-seven energetic singing girls who take pride in being a member of the Gulf Park Glee Club. They have seven great officers, starting with Muffet Triggs as President; Shau. na Annin as Vice-President; Carol Craven as Secretary; Donna Thompson as Treasurer; Patti Schrader and LeMoine Otjen as Librarians; and Susie Cole as Historian. Right now they are practicing hard for our Christmas con- cert which is going to be a real hit, thanks to Mr. Christmas, the fantastic pianist and Mr. Spell, our new director. Mr. Spell claims that they could be the best college singing group on the Coast. They performed on December 18 one of the masterpieces of Ben- jajmin Britten — A Ceremony of Carols. TERESA AT GULF PARK by Jeanne Price Students and faculty of Gulf Park Colleige were entertained this fall by the Spanish dances of Teresa Torkanouwky and the music of her guitarist, Jim Woods, of New Orleans; Teresa delighted her audience with the presenta- tion of four spirited dances. These were variations of classical and Flamenco dances: the Jeta, a peasant folk dance; the Soleares, a more solemn dance; the Aleg- rias, a gay dance of rapid foot- work; and the Sevillia which was done in classical form. She was accompanied in three of these dances by Jim's guitar. The classi- cal form was accompanied by pi- ano. Jim also played two Flamen- co numbers. Teresa has staged a number of Spanish dances in New Orleans. She was joined in these perform- ances by her group of local stu- dents, including her daughter Maria. Teresa has completed a six week introductory Spanish dancing course with a group of Gulf Park students here at the dance studio. She plans to return in January for a ten week course which will be for beginning and intermediate students. RUSH PARTIES by Clare Davenport The week of Rush began at 7 o'clock the night of September 23 •when the student body split into three sections and went to their first informal parties. The girls, upon arriving at Hardy, were greeted by Kappa Chi; at Eliza- beth by Delta Alpha; and at Lloyd by Sigma Psi. After the girls were introduced to the officers and other actives, they then proceeded to fill out information sheets. The rest of the time was spent talking to the actives and enjoying the refreshments while looking through the scrapbooks and over the a- wards won the preceding year. The same procedure took place again when the girls went to their second and last rush party for that night. Tuesday night followed the same schedule as Monday night with the changing of the sororities to Delta Chi in Hardy, Theta Alpha in Elizabeth, and Gamma Psi in Lloyd. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights were devoted to the sororities' skits, performed in the auditorium and speech workshop. On Wednesday night, Delta Alpha carried out the theme of "Hey, Look Us Over," playing several visiting young 1 men looking over the girls on Gulf Park campus, who came to the conclusion that the Delta Alpha girls were the best. Theta Alpha also carried the theme that night of "There's Nothing Fishy About Theta Al- pha." They showed how the ac- tives opened up their hearts in a lively, jovial, frolicsome way to the rushees by trying to make them feel a part of the group. Thursday night Gamma Psi enter- tained in "Hernando's Hideaway" with the Roaring 20s set in a scene of ragtime and blues. "Wel- come to Deltachisia Land," the theme of Delta Chi portrayed the first few days of a college girl and how she decided on Delta Chi as the sorority of her choice. Friday night brought with it Sigma Psi carrying out the theme of the perfect isle in the South Pacific, "Sigma Isle," where some college girls found out all about college life and what a sorority really means. Kappy Chi brought rush week to a close as its actives acted out sisterhood, fun, know- ledge, friendship, and the inner treasure by their theme, "En- chanted Isle of Kappa Chi." So ended a wonderful week, and the starting of many friendships. RAT DAY by Jeanne Mosher Rat Day was held at Gulf Park College on October 12, 1968. Many proud rushees, attired in their grubbiest old clothes with their hair braided up into count- less pigtails, became actives of their chosen sorority. Each of the six sororities, Delta Alpha, Delta Chi, Kappa Chi, Gamma Psi, Sigma Psi, and Theta Alpha, under the Panhel- Ienic Council, planned various "jobs" for their pledges to do. The Delta Alphas had the respon- sibility of cleaning out the Y-Hut along with the Delta Chiis scrub- bing out the new Panhellenic House. Gamma Psis had the pleasure of cleaning out the Fresh- man Fountain with toothbrushes, While the Kappa Chis picked up all the acrons under the Friend- ship Oak. While all this was tak- ing place, the Sigma Psis swept the entire driveway, and the Theta Alphas picked up trash from the HALO WEEN AND HOT CHOCOLATE Obviously enjoying for a mo- ment of relaxation around the fire- place, decorated for Halloween, in the Y-Hut are. left to right, Beth Grayson, Muffett Triggs, Cynthia Douglas, Jan Cooper and Donna Milner. The are probably thinking about 'the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays in the relaxed setting against the open fireplace. grounds all over the campus. These jobs terminated at noon. The af- ternoon found the little sisters with clothes to iron, furniture to paint, rooms to clean, and various other jobs to do for their big sisters. When the day ended, Gulf Park College had one hundred and eighty girls who had become ac- tives in one of the six sororities. This closed for another year, the anticipation and excitement of Rat Day. 10 WELLS HANGEN by Candy Krause Gulf Park was privileged to hear NBC's chief Far Eastern correspondent, Wells Hangen, speak for more than an hour on the overall situation in the Far East, on Monday, October 21, 1968. Following Mr. Hangen's address pertinent questions by the audi- ence centered not only on Viet- nam, but also other countries, in- cluding Red China, Thailand, Ber- lin, Israel, and Czechoslavakia. Mr. Hangen, who has returned recently to the United States from a three and a half year duty tour in Asia, cited hope for solv- ing the war in Vietnam, but stated there could be no decisive victory for either side. Both he felt, could reconcile issues without suffering too great a loss. Mr. Hangen also dispelled the domino theory and stated flatly that the United States must take cognizance of its abilities in the light of its commitments over the world, make an evaluation and act accordingly. Not only did Mr. Hangen's speech bring us to date on world issues but also opened for us new patterns of thought. A reception was held in Hardy Hall following Mr. Hangen's talk. An arrangement of chrysanthe- mums adorned the serving table of lace cloth. On Tuesday, before returning by plane to Washington, D. C, Mr. Hangen was to complete a tour of part of the Coast, es- corted by Dean Johnson. DON CHRISTMAS CONCERT PERFECT by Shauna Annin Many times as the sun sets on Gulf Park, the music building lights up and Don Christmas be- gins his many hours of practice. The results of these practices were finally appreciated by the students and faculty under Friendship Oak early this October. The concert contained a group of songs written by Dave Bru- beck and interpreted by Mr. ACTION by Carole Schoo This year the Action Club has been formed for all students in- terested in sociology. The club has become involved in several com- munity projects including work- ing with retarded children, super- vising children's activities, teach- ing children's interdenominational Sunday School and helping those recuperating from mental illness in a social and recreational set- ting. The following officers have been elected; Nancy Lou Dennis, Presi- dent; Bunny Wilson, Program Committee; Denby Franklin, Ser- vice Committee Chairman; and Kathy Kuntz, Publicity. SECRETARIAL SCIENCE CLUB Pam McElroy The Secretarial Science Club was organized as a social activity for the members of the business department. At the beginning of the year, members of the club published the annual student di- rectory, containing names, ad- dresses and telephone numbers of students attending Gulf Park Col- lege. The club also co-sponsors the annual spring fashion revue. The final activity of the Secretarial Science Club is to sponsor an early evening boat ride from Gulf- port to Biloxi then to Ship Is- land and back. With Miss Brock as sponsor and Betty Isles as president, the club will surely have an exciting year laid out for them. 11 Christmas. Mr. Christmas' feelings for music were impressed upon all who watched and listened as he played. The concert was an ex- ample of the age old saying "Prac- tice makes perfect," which Mr. Christmas exemplified well. The audience was left with a better understanding of Mr. Bru- beck's purpose in writing music and a realization of Mr. Christ- mas' superb talents. STUDENTS ATTEND HOME ECONOMICS CONVENTION by Sue Pope Four home economics students from Gulf Park College journeyed to Jackson, Mississippi for the Mississippi Home Economics As- sociation's 59th Annual Conven- tion.

TRIP TO SHIP ISLAND by Roseann Schmutzler One of the most interesting trips made by the girls of Gulf Park each year is the one to Ship Island, a small island off the Mississippi Coast. On a beautiful Sunday, Septem- ber 22, they embarked for the is- land by a fascinating ferry trip from the Gulfport, Mississippi harbor. Upon reaching the island all the students gathered in "Fort Massachusetts," an old fort used in the Civil War, to sing songs and to listen to an impromptu sermon given by Dean Johnson. Lunch followed these activities and the girls could soon be seen enjoying the sun and the surf of the beautiful island. Many happy but very sunburned girls returned to Gulf Park later that afternoon with a clearer understanding of why the trip to Ship Island is a traditional event. PENSACOLA WEEKEND by Roseann Schmutzler A group of 150 very sleepy, but very excited girls embarked on a dream-filled weekend at Pen- sacola Naval Air Station, Pensaco- la, Florida, on Saturday, Oct. 3. After the girls arrived and met their escorts, they set out for a fun-filled afternoon of football by attending the Navy-Marine game. The evening festivities began with the girls and their dates at- tending dinner in the commissioned officers' dining hall. Following dinner everyone was taken to the Mustin Beach Officers' Club where they were welcomed by the base Commander to the Regimental Ball. Two great bands and the Men's Glee Club entertained the guests, with the evening being completed by the selection of a Queen's Court. Carol Craven and her escort, Jim Abrams were chosen "Mr. and Miss America." On Sunday the girls and their escorts attended breakfast and church services together. In the afternoon they rounded out the weekend by attending a beach party at Mustin Beach where dancing and swimming were en- joyed by all. Later that afternoon the girls boarded their buses for the return trip to Gulf Park with many fond memories. INTERNATIONAL DEBUTANTE Miss Connie Adams, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John G.

A SACRED JOY by Mary Finch Freshman I pity a person that reaches out into life to find any happi- ness. For it is only through sorrow can we find real joy. Only the blind can see the true beauty of shapes and colors. Only the crippled may sense the excitement of running across a hot road on a warm summer's day. It is the childless wife who understands the sweetness of a baby's lonely cry, and the deaf only who realize the meaning of every word spoken. Life is filled with joy, but it can not truly be lived until it has something to live for. 19 HAPPINESS IS THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT AT GPC The Yuletide Season at Gulf Park College was a festive time of merrymaking. The spirit began December 6th at midnight when all the girls were snug in their beds. Messengers from the Stu- dent Government visited each dor- mitory, gathering the girls and house mothers to Hardy Recep- tion Room. The surprise — a beautiful Christmas tree, adorned with lights, ornaments, and a shiny bright star crowning the ecerscent vision. To close the per- fect evening there was hot choc- olate, cookies, and the joyous sound of familiar carols. The following Sunday, Decem- ber 8th, was the annual tea given by the Student Government for the faculty, staff, and members of the board. All of the local min- isters were also cordially invited. December 13th, the sororities entertained the underprivileged children of the Gulf Coast Salva- tion Army with a Christmas party. The cheery gathering, complete with a tree, gifts, refreshments, and many new friendships, was honored by the presence of a special host, Jolly Saint Nick himself! The most exciting event of the Yuletide Setason at Gulf Park was the Christmas Ball . . . Held on December 14 it was an occa- sion fondly remembered by all attending. From the girls in their formal attire, to the red, green and gold trim about the room and of course the music provided by George Wood's Soul Band, the affair was a success. From the decorating of the tree to the banquet and the Glee Club caroling the eve before, the holidays began surely you agree . . . Happiness truly was the Christmas Spirit at Gulf Park College!
